Holds office State House District 66

Position on Medical Marijuana

2022 Raleigh News & Observer Voter Guide



Indy Week Candidate Questionnaire - 4/27/22:

11. Do you support reforming North Carolina’s marijuana laws? Do you support full legalization? Please explain your position.

If legalized, North Carolina would join a growing list of nearly 40 states to reform marijuana laws.  Marijuana has been proven to be effective in relieving pain from chronic conditions and in treating post traumatic stress disorder that individuals face after trauma, such as veterans.  The North Carolina General Assembly considered legislation that would legalize medical marijuana in North Carolina in 2021 and I supported bringing it to the full Senate for a vote.  Unfortunately, leadership would not let the bill be heard outside of committee.


B- Publicly supports legalization of medical cannabis and/or decriminalization - voted for but did not sponsor legislation.

Crawford currently serves in the NC Senate representing District 18; she is running to represent District 66 in the NC House.
